How Mental Illness Makes Some Executives Stronger

How Mental Illness Makes Some Executives Stronger | Mental Health | Scoop.it

The very term “mental illness” carries such a stigma that even acknowledging this headline out loud was a risk. The euphemistic or politically correct term for a mood or personality disorder might be “carries a diagnosis.” But any way you look at it, the issues of mental illness in the workplace are real and the number of people who are affected is great.

From depression, anxiety, ADHD and dyslexia to OCD and bipolar disorder—a great many of the individuals we work with – possibly even ourselves—are dealing with at least one of these issues, and due to “co-morbidity” – the conditions that tend to occur in pairs or multiples—there are many individuals dealing with more.

Jennifer Lynn's curator insight, February 8, 6:37 AM

You are absolutely right; many are dealing with more than one mental illness at a time. This ‘co-morbidity’ condition is when these disorders tend to come in pairs or multiples. But it is difficult to understand whether you are suffering from one mental illness or from many. Determining the actual illness is necessary.

If you think you are suffering from depression and you start treatment for that, it may not work if your illness is something else. Suppose, your initial illness is ADHD and due to ADHD you have depression, then in that case you need to treat ADHD first. Statistics says almost 50% of ADHD patient also suffer from depression. So, it is important to determine whether you have ADHD, depression or both.

There are three major distinctions on the basic of which you can determine and those are- depressed moods, motivation versus disorganization and sleep patterns. In case of depressed mood, a person having ADHD will feel hopeless, frustrated, unmotivated for shorter period of time. It will be triggered by any recent adverse incident. But in case of depression this dark moods will tend to continue for a longer period of time and not linked with any particular incident.

Like this, there are other determination factors which will help you to know your real mental illness. Learn them before it’s too late: http://www.therapytribe.com/article/3_ways_to_determine_if_its_adhd_depression_or_both.html

Northwest Christian University Class President Reveals He's an Atheist

Northwest Christian University Class President Reveals He's an Atheist | Mental Health | Scoop.it
He Expected Criticism But He says People Have Been Extremly Supportive

Doingtime2's curator insight, November 11, 2013 6:55 PM

"I was an atheist long before I came to NCU. I was baptized Lutheran, and raised Methodist, but as time went on I slowly came to the conclusion that God wasn't real. For me, church was an empty ritual that I participated in so I could see friends, scripture was largely mythological, and Jesus was a great moral teacher, but he wasn't God," said Fromm's post.

McGinnis said Fromm asked him to help him write the story, and even though they knew they might receive backlash about the piece, they decided to publish it anyway.

"We knew that there was going to be a mix of responses," McGinnis said. "He [Fromm] was getting prepared to defend himself and defend his position. He felt he was being misrepresented."

However, he didn't have to.

"The surprising thing for the both of us was that the school and the students were remarkably supportive," McGinnis said. "I think Christian identity but willingness to accept those from a different background, I think that's the precise balance."

When asked about Fromm's role as the president of the study body at NCU, Jones also said the school doesn't plan to ask him to step down because of his article.

"Eric is an exemplary student, a good friend, a thorough academic, and when it comes to credibility as the ASNCU president he is the best qualified to fill that position," McGinnis told ABC News.

Fromm said he was also shocked to see how many people online have reached out to him with their own personal stories and also to tell him he was an inspiration to them. He said thanks to his post, people were telling him they had hope they could be accepted for not believing in God.

"I have learned so many things about people's struggles," Fromm said. "I never really knew that people could struggle, that an atheist could feel this struggle.

"It makes me very happy that I can change people this way, and it's not insulting any religion, and it's not destroying who the person is," he said.

Iris Flowers’ son Ryan Singleton (pictured) had left Atlanta back in July to pursue his dream to become a Hollywood actor. Sadly, the dream was cut short when he went missing during a trip to Las Vegas and eventually was found dead by joggers on September 21, in the desert near Baker, Calif.

Soon after, Flowers received the heart-breaking phone call about her son’s body being discovered by local authorities, along with the strange details that his organs were missing.

“There were no organs,” Flowers told FOX 5 Atlanta. “He said, ‘Ma’am, there were no eyes, there was no heart, there were no lungs, there was no liver, there were no kidneys.”
